New Delhi: After posting a hundred-run opening stand Alex Lees was posing a lot of difficulty to the Indian bowlers. As Mohammed Shami threw the ball towards Jadeja, they got Lees run-out and Virat Kohli was seen celebrating the important wicket aggressively. It was the second back-to-back wicket for India, just after they came back from the Tea.

Virat Kohli is known for the aggression and passion he brings to the game. When everyone was running towards Shami, who got Lees run-out, Virat ran across the pitch and roared and punched the air to celebrate the wicket. Virat’s passion for the game has made him an uncrowned brand ambassador of Test cricket. Though he is not in the best of his form currently, it is still difficult to keep him out of the game. Kohli was also seen having a chat with Alex Lees just before the Tea break, which is speculated to be some sort of sledging done by the 33-year-old batsman.

As both the teams came back after the Tea, India was in desperate need of a wicket. Jasprit Bumrah, India’s captain, came to bowl and dismissed Ollie Pope on the very first delivery after the break. In the next over Lees edged the ball towards Shami, who was standing on the fine leg, and Joe Root started to run from the non-striker end. Lees was just late to start his run and eventually got run out.

Seeing Virat Kohli’s celebration, people shared various reactions on Twitter. A fan called the batsman to be electrifying on the field.

A Twitter user had a humourous take on Virat’s celebration.

Even Sky Sports, the broadcaster, tweeted the video and wrote “Virat Kohli just loves it.”

At the end of day 4, the game stands in the favour of the Englishmen as they require 119 runs with 7 wickets in hand.
